Brentford v Liverpool Premier League Betting Tips 17/02/24

Brentford v Liverpool betting tips

Mid-table Brentford will host table-topping Liverpool in this Saturday’s early Premier League clash so here is our Brentford v Liverpool Premier League Betting Tips. The Bees picked up a rare win last time out and showed glimpses of a return to form after some woeful recent form. Liverpool’s title push has showed no signs of slowing down recently, and the Reds are in top form. Despite the current gulf between these two sides, there are some decent betting picks across the broad. Brentford vs Liverpool kicks off at 12:30 at the Gtech Stadium. It will be shown live on TNT Sports.

Form and Team News

After failing to win in seven successive matches, Brentford have slightly turned a corner recently with two wins in four. A 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest gave way to consecutive losses to Tottenham (3-2) and Man City (3-1). But the Bees notched a big 2-0 win over Wolves on Saturday to move six points clear of the relegation zone. Liverpool were back to winning ways with a 3-1 home win over Burnley last time out. The win followed a rare defeat at Arsenal (3-1) – the Reds’ only defeat in 13 matches in all competitions. 

In terms of team news, Brentford trio Joshua Da Silva, Aaron Hickey and Kevin Schade are ruled out. Liverpool could be boosted by the return of Mo Salah and Alisson. However, Thiago Alcantara, Stefan Bajcetic and Ben Doak are out. 

Match Winner Bet

The bookies have one clear favourite in mind for the Brentford vs Liverpool clash. As Brentford have lost seven of their last nine Premier League matches, they are considered as the outsiders against Liverpool. Three of the Bees’ losses in this spell came on home turf, and William Hill have a Brentford victory at 9/2. A draw also appears unlikely between Brentford and Liverpool. The Bees have not drawn any of their last 16 league matches. Liverpool also see few stalemates and have not drawn in six consecutive matches. Currently, the odds reflect the unlikelihood of a draw, with Unibet offering 18/5 odds. As Jurgen Klopp’s side are flying high at the top of the table, we are picking an away win in the match winner market. Five wins in six put the Reds two points clear at the top of the Premier League. In addition, Liverpool showed their quality in a 3-0 win over Brentford in the reverse fixture. Therefore, our pick this weekend is a Reds away win at 4/7, provided by bet365.

Over/Under Betting

A common theme between Brentford and Liverpool matches this season has been goals. Brentford have regularly been involved in high-scoring encounters recently. Four of their last five fixtures in all competitions have seen over 3.5 goals. The Bees have also hit the net regularly, striking two or more goals in three of their last five. Liverpool are often dominant in Premier League matches and create a lot of chances. Klopp’s outfit have scored three or more goals in four of their last five – even without Salah in the team. The Reds have also seen over 3.5 goals in their last five matches. While over 3.5 goals could also be on the cards, there is still value in going lower and backing over 2.5 goals at the Gtech. Our total goals tip for Brentford vs Liverpool is over 2.5 and Unibet will return 13/25 odds here.

Anytime Goalscorer

Two players are available as the top goalscorer picks this weekend in West London. First, Brentford’s Ivan Toney has shown no rustiness on his return to the fold. Toney has scored three goals in his first four matches back for the Bees, including a vital second in the 2-0 win at Wolves on Saturday. There are still decent odds on backing Toney, and Boylesports have 2/1 odds for the striker to net at any time. But a more consistent scorer and our anytime goalscorer pick is Liverpool’s Diogo Jota. Due to Salah’s absence, Jota has been given time to produce the good in attack. As a result, Jota has repaid Klopp’s faith with five goals in his last six matches. The Portuguese have scored 14 goals in just 17 starts in all competitions this season, and he is worth backing again this weekend. At 7/4, Betfair has decent odds for another Jota anytime goal in the Premier League. 

Our Brentford v Liverpool Premier League Betting Tips

Match Winner Bet — Liverpool — 4/7 with Bet365

Over/Under Betting — Over 2.5 Goals — 13/25 with Unibet

Anytime Goalscorer — Diogo Jota — 7/4 with Betfair

Brentford often score goals, but the test of visiting Liverpool might be too much for the West Londoners. Liverpool’s current form is electric, and the Reds score a tonne of goals. Yet, opportunities could flow at both ends in this Premier League clash at the Gtech.
